Gears of War 3 campaign teaser trailer has precious seconds of story info

It looks like Epic isn’t waiting for E3 to start talking about the campaign in Gears of War 3. After everyone enjoyed a preview of the title during the just closed multiplayer beta, some may have forgotten about the campaign which promises to conclude the tale of Marcus Fenix and his squad of meat tanks. A fuller trailer is coming May 28, but here’s the tiniest of tastes of what that future footage has in store:

Players of Gears won’t be too surprised that the game will focus at least partially on Marcus searching for his presumed-dead father, especially considering the post-credits communication from the senior Fenix at the end of the last game. The rest of the trailer will go live May 28 at 9:45 PM GMT, which is 5:45 PM Eastern, 2:45 PM Pacific.

    OK, Now I want it even more AND I'm in suspense. GODDAMNYOU, Cliffy B! And @Redeater- I'm pretty sure that they've said this IS the end of the Trilogy, but I'm CERTAIN There'll be more backstory, spinoffs, and franchise-whoring. Maybe even a board game. Wait, what...!?

    This is the biggest shooter since Halo 3 for me. I can't wait, Epic has done a fantastic job, based on the beta. This game will be my GOTY 2011, especially since ME3 isn't coming out this year.

    This teaser looked like it was put together choppily and hastily. Probably not the best thing employed for convincing non-believers in how storytelling can be improved in today's military shooters.

    I've seeb plenty of amazing preview clips for trailers (the original God of War 3 short stands out in my mind); however, this isn't one of them. The fast paced music playing the whole time ruins the whole dramatic effect

    Cant wait to actually play the caimpaign and the multiplayer of course.

    @roflknife56 Pretty sure Epic said it a bunch of times during the development of the first one. Also I know they have mentioned it on talkradar quite a few times. I would suggest listening to it if you don't. Hilarious and informative!

    @Redeater When did Epic ever say this was not the end of the current story arc?
  • Redeater - May 20, 2011 7:38 p.m.

    Well that was barely coherent. Guess that is why I shouldn't rant while watching MST3K.

    I just jizzed. Looks like Epic REALLY stepped up with the graphics this time around. I can't fucking wait to play the campaign.
  • Redeater - May 20, 2011 7:37 p.m.

    I stopped caring about the campaign after they backed out of they went back on their word about Gears ending with Gears 3. So instead of having a possible gritty ending with half your team dying you know they are going to keep them around for the franchise. Current story arc ending my ass!

    People care about the campaign?

    I'm getting pretty annoyed by the teasers of trailers that are hardly substantial anyway. Can we just get information and not make the trailer seem more important than it actually is?
